Had a little duration work sesh with Odin at our local Chico 🐶
Most petstores (outside of rush hours) are a great way to practice stuff when your dog has aquired the knowledge but still needs to learn how to link the pieces in real life situations (here: food everywhere and Odin’s very favorite creatures: Humans.)
Practice for skills that you need - Today we were working on slowing down and minding our own business.
A mere 20mins in the store got Odin so exhausted he lied down instead of sittingwhen i asked for a stay (photo op you’re welcome.) I then knew he was ready for what i was actually there with him for: walking through the treat isle without stopping.
We got an 8/10 for the performance but a 10/10 for the attitude - which im so very happy with for a 2nd time doing this 👌🏼

Twilight Tails at Bay Meadows’ Landing Green Park kicked off with a fun group of dogs, their humans, and dog service providers including @forsniffsandgiggles, Jean Cary of Service Dog Tutor, and yours truly, of course! My pup Fiona joined in the fun as well! It’s so nice to know there are other force-free walkers and trainers in the area to whom I can refer people.
Join us May 2nd and the first Thursday of each month through October, plus a Halloween party!
We saw the Easter bunny on our hike today! Glad that the dogs did not... Spring has sprung at #blackstrapprovincialpark and it is beautiful! Crocuses are out, birds are singing and the sun is shining! Add that to great company with @veronicafehr and its going to be a great summer at the lake!
